Generally beware of large account that doesn’t appear to be "personal" and is spewing content 24/7, without any kind of referral and showing no means of monetization. They are building an audience, not for free.

So now ransomware gangs are setting up auctions for stolen data. Looks like the Shadow Brokers were ahead of their time.

These are 4 images from my news feed, may 2020. What a mess.

I mean, we go back to the halting problem... there's nothing much we can do to detect this.

Also, it says a lot when an attacker is using tech from 2008-2009 (VirtualBox version 3.0.4 and Win XP SP3) to bypass latest 2020 EDR/AV.

deploying an old VirtualBox and a Windows XP image (totalling more than 400 MB), then mounting the drives to encrypt the files on the host from the VM. This is *really* dirty... and pretty smart when you think about AV evasion.

Everytime I read "POS malware" I can only think of "piece of shit malware" (when it really means Point-of-sale malware). Am I the only one? 🤣

The company behind this mysterious project, 1984 Group LP, exists since 2015 (beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/com). No clue where they get their funding. There is no donation available and their "kit" is free to download.
